Photo Of The Day: Dead Horse Point

Photo Of The Day: Dead Horse Point Oct 8th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Joe Newman, Flickr As we move into October, the sun is starting to set earlier with every day -- and what better than a sunset photo from our Gadling Flickr Pool to wrap up your Tuesday? Flickr member Joe Newman added this photo of the sun setting over the Colorado River, shot from Dead Horse Point, to the pool. We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our...

Photo Of The Day: Peanut Field

Photo Of The Day: Peanut Field Sep 6th, 2013 at 6:00PM: taberandrew, Flickr As the week wraps up, so does summer. The weather is starting, slowly, to turn -- crisp air and falling leaves will soon be the theme of the great outdoors. So, with the sun setting on the week, the season and (in the photo) Peanut Field, what's in store for your Friday evening? We'd love to feature your photos and videos on Gadling, so please add them to our Flickr Pool...

Photo Of The Day: Manhattan Skyline

Photo Of The Day: Manhattan Skyline Jul 11th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Flickr, James Adamson Tomorrow evening in New York City, you can witness a twice-a-year phenomenon known as Manhattanhenge, when the sunset perfectly aligns with the city's grid and makes the streets glow. Manhattan already has one of the most photogenic skylines in the world, as demonstrated by this postcard-perfect shot by Flickr user James Adamson. His shot of the Empire State Building (still...

Photo Of The Day: Sunset At Kiyomizu-dera, Kyoto

Photo Of The Day: Sunset At Kiyomizu-dera, Kyoto Apr 30th, 2013 at 6:30PM: It's difficult to describe the magic of Kyoto, Japan, but today's Photo of the Day comes awfully close. Taken at sunset from the Kiyomizu-dera temple, the image showcases the traditional architecture of the temple, the bright reds and oranges of the fall foliage, the city below and the mountains in the distance. Capturing the shot wasn't a simple endeavor, but Flickr user Chung Hu...

Photo Of The Day: Sunset After Nemo

Photo Of The Day: Sunset After Nemo Feb 12th, 2013 at 6:30PM: Last week, Winter Storm Nemo battered the Eastern seaboard of the United States with torrential snow and sleet, not to mention a bitter cold freeze that lasts to this day. In the calm after the storm, Flickr user Peter Rood captured this image of a stunning sunset over Boston, one of the cities hit worst by the storm. Where Mother Nature wreaks havoc, she can also bring extraordinary...

Roadside America: St. Joseph, Michigan

Roadside America: St. Joseph, Michigan Oct 17th, 2012 at 9:00AM: Growing up in Boston and later Tucson, I grew up going on beach vacations in New England and California. It wasn't until I started dating my husband a decade ago that I discovered America's "Third Coast" (the Great Lakes, for our purposes, though some call the Gulf states the Third Coast) in the Midwest. Visiting my in-laws in St. Joseph, Michigan, I was amazed to see that you don't need to go...

Photo Of The Day: Mountain Biking View

Photo Of The Day: Mountain Biking View Sep 23rd, 2012 at 6:00PM: Phew! There are few views more rewarding than the ones that have been earned after a long run, hike or bike ride. It's exactly what this group of mountain bikers, captured in today's photo by Flickr user Kumukulanui, must be thinking right now. Taken right at sunset, the silhouetted poses of the exhausted riders create a striking visual against the fading orange and yellow glow of the sky. ...

Photo Of The Day: Antigua At Sunset

Photo Of The Day: Antigua At Sunset Aug 3rd, 2012 at 6:30PM: Tucked in a valley in the central highlands of Guatemala, the colonial town of Antigua is one of Central America's greatest treasures, as well as one of its best budget travel destinations. The town is captured magically at sunset in today's Photo of the Day, taken by Flickr user Adam Baker from his perch at the Earth Lodge, an eco-resort and avocado farm located just outside the city....

Photo Of The Day: Sunset Walk

Photo Of The Day: Sunset Walk Jul 29th, 2012 at 6:00PM: Flickr user GogoTheGogo has taken a photo of what looks like the end of a perfect day. The image features a solitary figure in silhouette walking through the grass against a fiery orange sky in Zagreb, Crotia. I love the warm colors, the way the light plays off the little puffs of cloud, and most of all, the anonymity of that lone figure who gets to take this magnificent scene in. Taken any...

A Sunset Mosh Pit In Santorini

A Sunset Mosh Pit In Santorini Jun 21st, 2012 at 11:00AM: Tourism is supposed to be way down in Greece this year, right? Then perhaps someone can explain why there were approximately 35,000 tourists jostling and clawing for space to capture the perfect shot of the setting sun last night in Oia, on the island of Santorini? I knew before we arrived that Santorini is the most popular (and expensive) of the 200 or so inhabited Greek islands, and I visited...

Photo Of The Day: Venus And Jupiter At Sunset

Photo Of The Day: Venus And Jupiter At Sunset Jun 7th, 2012 at 7:00PM: This week, millions looked to the sky at sunset (or sunrise, depending on your location) to see the Transit of Venus. This now once-in-a-lifetime event – the last time Venus was visible crossing the sun's path was 2004 – won't happen again until 2117. Today's Photo of the Day is from a more frequent event: sunset. Taken by Flickr user woofboy111 in Deltona, Florida, in November...

Photo Of The Day: Krabi Sunset

Photo Of The Day: Krabi Sunset Apr 15th, 2012 at 6:30PM: Perhaps no place is as romanticized as Thailand's exotic stretches of coast and islands. The country's many sugar-sand beaches, dramatic limestone cliffs and enticing emerald-clear waters create some of the most eye-catching scenery on Earth. In today's photo, brought to us by Flickr user Geir Ertzgaard, we have further visual evidence taken at sunset near Krabi on Thailand's western Andaman...

Photo of the Day: Austin sunset

Photo of the Day: Austin sunset Mar 7th, 2012 at 6:30PM: With any luck, plenty of people will witness at least one gorgeous Austin sunset over the course of the next two weeks. SXSW, a music, film, and interactive festival that takes place annually in Austin, Texas, kicks off this Friday. The city of Austin is expecting more attendees than ever this year. Even the usually quiet streets of East Austin, where this unedited photo was taken, will be...

Photo of the Day: Sunset over Bruges

Photo of the Day: Sunset over Bruges Feb 12th, 2012 at 6:00PM: The Belgian city of Bruges is famous for its stunning medieval architecture - it's a fact made all the more apparent by today's photo, taken by Flickr user clee130. Taken at sunset, the city's gothic cathedral spires (that's the Church of Our Lady on the left, and St. Salvator's Cathedral on the right) and angular roofs are bathed by the warm glow of an ethereal, golden light. Taken any...

In winter, Seattle is mine again.

In winter, Seattle is mine again. Nov 30th, 2011 at 10:00AM: November, December, Seattle. Typically, it's raining and the temperatures hover around 40ºF. The sky is a dull, even gray that mutes all light and color. It's miserable, by most measures, not cold enough to snow, but too cold to enjoy being outside without performance attire. Perhaps it's the worst at the bus stop; cars roll by throwing water and wind, there is not enough protection in...

Photo of the day: open road in Texas

Photo of the day: open road in Texas Jun 8th, 2011 at 4:00PM: There are plenty of motorcyclists in Texas and there's also plenty of open road. Texas: where summer never really fully ends. I haven't ever driven a motorcycle myself, but I have spent hours upon hours hitching rides as a motorcycle passenger--it's fun. But not only is it fun, it's also so... summer. Whether you're navigating roads this summer on a bike, by car, or on foot, there is...

Photo of the day - Sunset in Manhattan

Photo of the day - Sunset in Manhattan Mar 31st, 2011 at 5:00PM: Sunsets are a common staple of the travel photo album. We tend to associate them with palm-tree-lined beaches, desert landscapes, and misty mountains. Yet this photo by Flickr user jameskadamson has nary a cactus or foothill in sight. Taken in New York City, it's a beautiful perspective on the building's architecture and the photographer's favorite time of day. Want more sunsets? Check out...

Video of the Day - Sunsets around the world

Mar 29th, 2011 at 10:30PM: Seeing the sun set over a foreign land can lead to some of the most memorable moments on any given trip. Even though it's an event we witness every day of our lives, watching it dip over a new horizon always feels like a completely new experience. Today's Video of the Day is a collection of one backpacker's best sunsets from a 365 day trip around the world. Romain Corraze decided to...

Manhattanhenge 2011 comes to New York City: May 30-31, July 11-12

Mar 20th, 2011 at 3:00PM: We've covered Manhattanhenge on Gadling occasionally over the years, and each time it never fails to amaze us. The concept, in case you're unfamiliar, plays off the juxtaposition of the sun setting across the east-west streets of Manhattan. On only a few days out of the year the sun sets exactly between rows of skyscrapers, resulting in long beams of sunlight tumbling across the city and...

Photo of the Day (1.9.11)

Photo of the Day (1.9.11) Jan 9th, 2011 at 6:00PM: If taken poorly, sunset photos can be quite boring. But sometimes you find an exception, like this stunning shot by Flickr user justindelaney. What initially caught my eye was that fiery red color, in the middle. To me it's the epitome of the type of dry, searing dusty day you'd expect to find in Texas, where this shot was taken. You can almost feel the heat of the day evaporating, sandwiched...
